Is there a time limit for reporting HIPPA violations
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.

There is no "statute of limitations" on HIPAA. You can report a violation at any time.

But it is important to understand that only the Federal Government can prosecute HIPAA violations. The Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for investigating HIPAA violations.
